COVID-19 Resource Center

SCEMSA has been working closely with national, state, and local partners to navigate guidance and resources for the COVID-19 response. Below are resources, documents, and links that may be useful to your agency. Please remember things change quickly and all treatment guidelines and/or protocols would need to be approved at your local level. 

Newest Additions

  • CMS FAQ - Selected Ambulance Topics: alternate destinations, co-pays, and in-home services provided by ambulance personnel under arrangement with a physician, or non-physician practitioner. (Updated 6/16/20)


CARES Act Grant/Stimulus Updates


Check back for updates.


4/23/20 - While EMS agencies have received some relief through the passage of the CARES Act, the needs of our EMS agencies and personnel serving on the frontlines of this pandemic war were not adequately addressed through the CARES Act legislation. All EMS systems, whether they are public, private or a combination of both, are struggling.

Please ask Congress to provide direct funding relief for EMS in Phase 4 COVID-19 legislation to ensure that we can safely continue to serve our communities! It takes less than a minute!

TAKE ACTION HERE.  It only takes a few moments.
